Target Ad Misprint - In Your Favor!
Target Sale Controversy in the Coupon World! So, if you're following any extreme couponers, you probably saw their excitement leading up to this Sunday's Target add - for the deal that says buy any 1 select multi-pack of Colgate or Crest Toothpaste of Orab-B toothbrushes, get a $5 gift card. Well, it was a misprint - it was supposed to be buy "any 3" not "any 1."
Target is honoring the printed add deal - if you ask, at certain stores. I had to go check it out myself before reporting it, but the Buffalo store was no problem. I brought my add to the service counter, and the lady made a quick walkie call and said to tell the cashier that so-and-so approved the deal for me.
Why is this such a big deal? I got a 2-pack of Colgate Ultra White toothpaste for $ .24 after gift card discount. Here's the break down:
2-pack of Colgate Ultra White toothpaste: $5.99
$ .75 coupon
PLUS received a $5 gift card
I split this into 2 transactions - so my next transaction, I bought a few other things and after using coupons and my gift card, it cost me $1.63.
Basically got $56 in merchandise for only $7.05 which includes a lot of Bounce dryer sheets.
Oh - and they were out of the 5-count Zyrtec, so couldn't use my overage, which would've taken my total down another $1.64.
